What Is Action Against Hunger – help save lives

I first heard of this charitable organization called Action Against Hunger while doing research for an article on Moon Balance. Moon Balance is a superfood powder mix sold in the US by YourSuper.com and distributed around the world. I was so emotionally moved that YourSuper donates a life-saving food bar to hungry children around the world for every mix sold through the website. To clarify that’s a 1:1 ratio. So I placed an order of my own to support the cause and started to recommend it to everybody. In the process, I decided I wanted to help and also learn more about what is Action Against Hunger.

World hunger is on the rise

=>>HELP SAVE LIVES-click here<<=


Over 820 million people around the world go hungry each and every day. And every year 2.6 million of them are children that die from severe malnutrition. The majority of the hunger challenges are in Asia, Africa and South America. A report done in 2017 noted the increase in hunger is due to climate, conflict and economic slowdown. Hunger is strongly interconnected to poverty and involves demographic, political, social and societal factors. Due to poverty, the people are faced with food insecurity and use inappropriate care practices. They tend to live in unsafe environments that don’t have enough access to quality water, sanitation, hygiene and they have limited access to health services and education. Conflict is another key driver of challenges of severe food crises including famine. Undernutrition is much worse when conflicts are prolonged and institutions are weak.

YourSuper donates to Action Against Hunger the lifesaving food bar called a Plumpy’Nut package. It’s a ready to use bar that is effective in the fight against hunger and is called (RUTF) Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Foods. The powerful bar is packed with a nutrient rich paste that is made mostly from peanuts and enhanced with vitamins and minerals. The bar is used for the treatment of severe acute malnutrition and can help children recover from near death after consuming the bar for 3 times per day for seven weeks. The Plumpy’Nut package is a revolutionary product developed in France in 1996 that requires no cooking, refrigeration or clean water and has a shelf life of 2 years.

  1. Action Against Hunger is clearly an organization that is making a difference in the world against hunger. I listened to a. speech by the CEO. He said that hunger has been cut in half in the last 40 years but his vision is to have the problem eliminated in the next 40 years. That’s a vision I can support!

  2. This is such a noble cause for people who can afford to be part of this to take a serious action against hunger.
    It’s so sad to see how so many children are dying because of lack of basic needs or even clean water to begin with! 🙁
    Our lose change will make a make of different of life and death for them.

    Thank you for bringing this matter up to everyone’s attention.

  3. Glad to see that the super food powder is helping on all fronts. A company that I can stand behind and I thank you for bringing this to attention.

    So many kids in the world without food, water, medicine or a home. It’s definitely a great reason to keep supporting this charity group that is making such a huge difference in many of these lives.

  4. This is a beautiful initiative! The nut bar looks great and I love that it has a long shelf life. Many communities have no electricity, so food items like that will definitely go a long way.

  5. I love YourSuper for their products, and this initiative shows what kind of a company this is. They are great in their mission of not only providing healthy food, but doing business in a sustainable and conscious way.
    Thanks for pointing it out, Alyse 🙂

  6. A great cause and I don’t think we appreciate the level of hardship that goes on until its highlighted in articles like this.

    I know people are keen to compare like for like but the situation is crazy especially around food and water. Thanks for sharing this important and often forgot about cause.

  7. I read your article on Action Against Hunger. I have donated to this very worthwhile cause. My boyfriend has donated also. Thank you for all the information that you provide for us. I plan to tell my friends about you and all the interesting articles that you have written about. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you

  10. Another very good and informative article Alyse!! I actually have heard of Action Against Hunger and looked a little into it. Good organization to help in these trying and desperate times. Well done, as always!! :))

  11. Thanks for your humanitarian effort to help eliminate child hunger in our world. It’s just plain unacceptable and unbelievable that our contemporary and advanced civilization still has millions of people that starve every year.

    We need to end this now.
